Nearly finished my "ratrod/hoodride" split beetle, to be unveiled next month at the Otown Show n' Shine. You can view the before and after pics at the link below. The purists will definetely hate what I have transformed this 52CC split into, but oh well. Atleast the crashbox is OG

This is the second time i have caught you refering me, Airkewld-Kewl, with what KCW used to be afilliated with, hoodride.

Do you need some help with the terminology.

Hey to each his own but why would you do that? It would look cool if you had slammed it and left it. Nice car and all just don't understand the green and Iron Cross?

It would look much better without the iron cross and that ugly visor, otherwise it's nice. Besides, anything beats that original beige color, yuck.
